Gran Arzuaga Ribera del Duero
Bodegas Arzuaga
Spain - Castilla y Leon - Ribera del Duero

VISUAL : The wine has a bright cherry red color with violet rims.
NOSE : Great aromatic complexity. In the first place, the primary aromas of red fruits such as blackberry predominate, herbaceous and floral touches that give way to tertiary aromas where balsamic and spicy aromas stand out.
PALATE : Creamy and silky wine. With a fresh entry in the mouth that quickly becomes meaty and unctuous in its passage through the mouth. In retronasal we once again have an enormous aromatic complexity, remembering everything that it showed us in the olfactory phase.

Vinification
After carrying out the manual harvest, each variety separately, in boxes of no more than 10 kg and passing through the selection table, the Tempranillo is vatted in 500-litre French barrels and the Cabernet Sauvignon separately in the same type of barrels. After 4 days of cold maceration at 14ºC, alcoholic fermentation began, reaching 29ºC. 20 days were necessary to carry out the previous processes together with the post-fermentation maceration before introducing the wine into the 228-litre barrels. Malolactic fermentation and subsequent aging under its fine lees were carried out in them. For 35 months without making any movement or racking, the aging took place in the barrels of very fine grains mentioned above.
